The Imagine Well Being Story

wellness orgImagine Well Being (IWB) was originally conceived in 2011 as a service project to address the personal, social and spiritual needs of individuals and families in the Northern Virginia region.

A committed team of volunteers was trained in Human-Centered Design, a creative process that seeks solutions by working with those who are intended to benefit.

The Imagine Well Being Story

Imagine Well Being was launched on in 2012.  Over the next few years, offerings grew to include mindful meditation, yoga, stress-reduction workshops, nature-based meditative hikes and small informal conversation groups. These offerings were made available at no charge and led by trained volunteer guides.

Let’s Take a Hike from Suburbia was launched on in 2013 with a focus on meditative nature experiences. Over 8,000 people have connected to the Meetup groups Imagine Well Being and Let’s Take a Hike from Suburbia.

In July of 2020 an Imagine Well Being Lead Team and Team of Advisors were put in place and nonprofit status was established to extend the reach of envisioning a world where well-being is available to everyone. The Human-Centered Design process continues to inform the ways Imagine Well Being will offer gatherings and courses in the future.
